The Daily Cuppa

Sometimes people call my husband Mr. Parkhurst.

Periodically we receive mail addressed to “The Parkhurst Family.” The presumption makes me chuckle.

I’m the only Parkhurst in our family. Our two sons have my husband’s last name, not mine.

Chad, my husband, takes it in stride. But, sometimes I wonder if he would prefer my name match his.
